    Have you ever seen T3 magazine? It's a British gadget magazine (very good) and it's LOADED with scantily-clad women!

    That only works for teh Europeans. American clearly like violent more than sex. That's why we need our gadget magazines fill up air-brushed touched-up baseball bat and missile pictures.

    I wouldn't consider the pics scandalous. But others considered them inappropriate for a treo blog. The comments at Treonauts are what are scandalous.

    While I respect each view & right to express it -I just don t see why a fuss about a gal in a bikini is anything other than what it is. Important to remember she has as much right to express herself as anyone else does,and I respect her alot. indyalex

    You rock.

    Guys don't get this concept b/c YOU'RE The ones that are being catered to here. The bikini girls are there for YOUR eyes. Do women wanna see that crap when we try to read a blog about Treos? NO! And I highly doubt that this girl is "expressing herself" by posing in a bikini. More like being (over)paid to take her clothes off. NOT respectable.

    I don't care that it's mostly guys who are into Treos, it doesn't mean that it's ok to alienate the few women who are into them. It just shows how basic some people are. Can men not stop thinking about tits long enough to read a blog, or do they absolutely have to see half-naked women everywhere just to hold their attention? Yeesh.

    This is the exact same reason I don't go to car shows anymore. I'm a female who enjoys racing & the like(I drive an '05 Neon SRT-4, standard), but if I go to a car show, all I see are sluts in bikinis. I didn't know I was paying admission just to have tits shoved in my face, I was under the impression that it was all about the cars. The last one I went to had a bikini show, but they didn't even talk about the cars. Am I really such a tight-a$$ for not enjoying & accepting the rampant sexism displayed by having completely unnecessary bikini girls at events like that? If they're gonna have these skanks for the guys, why not have men in speedos for the women? I'll tell you why, b/c NO GUYS WOULD COME TO THE SHOWS. Do you see my point here? It's not fair, these bikini girls drive away a lot of girls who are interested in the sport, or whatever you wanna call it. It's not okay to parade women around like bimbo trophies & then wonder why "prudes" get offended by it.

    A lot of people think, after hearing my opinions on stuff like this, that I'm some fat, gross, hog of a feminazi who's just jealous of the girls. Not true. I'm a petite, cute, skinny girl who looks like an anime chick & has her veritable pick of boyfriends. I am not jealous of anybody. I just don't think that it's necessary to include smut with absolutely EVERYTHING.

    I don't expect any guy to see my point of view, or reply to it with anything other than "Take off yer top!". I'm just voicing my thoughts on the off chance that some of you guys would be interested to see what one of your sex objects thinks.

    Hi K.

    I think you underestimate the other half. I think more than "some" would agree with you.

    Truth in Advertising . . .

    Truth in News . . .

    Sex Sells . . .

    What afternoon Soap Operas have become . . .

    Four of my pet peeves with American Media.

    Lol thanks, Surur.

    I think the whole "sex sells" thing is what I hate most about America. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate men by any means. I'm actually more fond of them than I am of women. I get along with guys, I think I have only 2 female friends at most. I think the reason I don't get along with girls is b/c most of them embrace the sex sells thing & use it to get what they want. It infuriates me that no-talent sluts like Jenna Jameson are multimillionaires for taking their clothes off, yet people like my mom, who's a teacher & a valuable asset to society, have to struggle to make ends meet. Its sickening & the people who think it's OK to have strippers everywhere are at the root of it. They're the ones that enable those skanks to make 100 grand a year while a research scientist trying to cure cancer makes half that at best.

    It used to be that sex was something meaningful that two people who loved each other shared & enjoyed. Now it's literally everywhere you look, even in tech blogs. It used to be a beautiful thing & now it's just cheap & common. It's not even special or anything to look forward to anymore. It's sad, really. I dread to see how things are 10 or 20 years from now. It scares me b/c my little girl has to grow up in this cesspool of a society & I'd die a thousand deaths if I ever saw her in a magazine.

    And yet this country restricts actual sexual freedom between consenting adults! Check many of the laws in various parts of the country!

    And Jenna Jameson is actually far from no-talent, she's one of the best business women in the porn industry!
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    I'm female too and I take exception to some of what you said. You do not need to call women who CHOOSE to appear in bikinis sluts and skanks! If you disapprove of the way car events are held, your real beef is with the ORGANIZER, NOT with the models! If a woman is over 21, she has a right to take her clothes off as a model if she so chooses, whether we agree or not!

    Yeah! Thats the problem with the (as you put it) "prudes"... They jump to conclusions and just assume that because someone is "less than clothed" that they cant possibly have anything of value to offer.

    Before casting stones, perhaps it would be a good idea to move out of that glass house.

    Well her line of thinking coincides with the sexual repression and hypocrisy this country really has. We do use sex to sell, HOWEVER in the end, we do NOT support sexual freedom concerning consenting adults.

    I indeed see where she's coming from about there being no need to put sex into everything just for the sake of drawing attention. But I do not agree with her putting down women who CHOOSE to express themeselves sexually.

    What I do wish though, is that some of these really young women would wait until they're truly sure of themselevs before appearing scantily clad because some are doing it for the wrong reason.

    I wonder what the right reason is.
  17. #38  
    The right reason is if you choose to, you really do not have to answer to anyone. BUT many do it because they want to boost their self-esteem(needing attention), they think their careers will take off, etc. Not because they truly wanted to do it for themselves, but for others. IMO that is NOT a good reason.

    LOL...I'm in the same situation except I drive a '95 Mustang with a custom engine

    I don't agree that ALL women are sluts and skanks because they earn their money with their bodies. But I also don't agree that ALL the women doing these "jobs" are necessarily doing by choice. Some of these women are wanna-be models and for lack of sheer luck, cannot cut it in the high-paid fashion industry. They think if they take these "modeling" jobs, they're one step closer to the big time...young girls with big dreams. It doesn't mean they like it, though I'm sure some do, but if it gets them closer to what they really want, they're willing to do it. No matter how demeaning it is...

    I had no idea women hated other women so much. If a man could earn a living by his appearance and attract piles of women to boot he would be much admired by his peers.
